National Samoa Basketball Institute NSW

The National Samoa Basketball Institute are using their granted Sport4Everyone funds to run free basketball clinics and training programs in which all the uniform and equipment will be provided free of charge.

Pacific Islander families are the targeted group for this grant, they have skills and experiences that limit employment opportunities to low-paid, casual and seasonal work. The granted funds will benefit these families and enable young athletes to launch their interest in basketball without the pressure on families to pay costly registration and uniform fees. The free basketball program will widen participation in a sport that has less physical risk of injury than rugby or AFL which is another benefit to families on low incomes, it will also promote healthy lifestyles and wholesome out-of-school activities.
